Samantha Nicholson of Bradford has been terrorised in her home by a gang of local teenagers, who threw bottles and bricks at her windows, sat in her garden late into the night playing loud music, threatened to burn her house down and burgle it and subjected her to vile abuse. She is now leaving the area.
At some point during her family's ordeal she slapped three of them. The Police immediately sprang into action. Now she has been sentenced to an 18 month community order for assault.
The Judge is overflowing with sympathy as he hands down the punishment, being certain that “any right thinking member of society would be appalled” by what she's put up with. They will also be appalled by his role in this shameful case.
